I'm a licensed tour guide since 2006 and have worked a bot in Poland, Paris, Bruxelles and Prague with travelers from many countries. I have also taught French for 12 years since my Master Degree in French language and history. Until recently, I lived and worked in Warsaw and always thought there was no better place for me to be to but . . I was wrong! Life has brought me to Lyon, a city I am easily falling for.
I always come back Poland with pleasure and smile but Lyon is now my new home.
This historical, amazing city with its 2000 years old culture, from Gauls till today's vibrant modern times surprises, impresses and . . makes you hungry! If Paris is a capital of France, Lyon is absolutely its gastronomical paradise. Being here and not tasting the quenelles, cheese, wine and sausages is impossible! You shouldn't miss out on a dinner in famous Paul Bocuse restaurant and you have to visit the Halles - a huge, covered food market full of colors, flavors and scents. . . If you would like to sample local cheese or wine during your visit here, tell me and I will arrange a great experience for you.
But. . . maybe you would prefer to visit the mysterious, covered passageways, the beautiful inner courtyards and the beautifully decorated facades of Old Lyon - the UNESCO heritage site ? Or walk on the remains of the Roman theater & odeon of Lugdunum ? Did you know that Lyon was also a silk capital? And that today, there's still a possibility to see how it is traditionally crafted and purchase really beautiful silk products? It makes for a really nice souvenir.
So If you want to discover this beautiful city and appreciate its history and diversity - get in touch with me and I will make sure that you get a chance to see its hidden gems, admire its sights and savor its flavors in a friendly atmosphere. I love what I do and I would like to share this passion with you when you come and visit.
I'm here for you and will do my best to meet your needs.
I speak French, English and Polish. Maybe even Spanish - if you are a little less demanding :-) If you want to feel and discover Lyon with me , I'd love to welcome you here!
A Recent Review of this guide
Gosia is 5/5. Excellent English and very knowledgeable. Tour is 4/5 only because very physically demanding with much walking, some people should not attempt. Also could be unpleasant if too cold or too hot. Our tour weather was fine. Could offer customization with more time in preferred locations and less in area where we finished up.
